StoriEstrella

Fine and Performing Arts Week

As part of Fine and Performing Arts Week, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) held “StoriEstrella”, a storytelling concert where past and current students where able to put their new skills to the test in front of their fellow students, family, and friends of all ages.

One student who got to perform a story was Mariesa Rojas. Rojas told a story entitled “Angelita and the Giants,” which is like Snow White but is a Brazilian tale. One fun fact about her tale is that instead of a poisoned apple, there are poisoned slippers that cause the princess to fall into a deep sleep.

One Billion Rising at EMCC

One Billion Rising

On February 2014, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) participated in the global “One Billion Rising” dance campaign to raise awareness and to end violence against women and young girls. 

The “One Billion Rising” campaign created a choreographed dance to “break the chain.” The purpose of the dance is for women to figuratively “break off the chain” their abuser has on them.

Worldwide, violence against women happens often. One of the event coordinators, Dr. Sandy Zetlan stated, “One out of three women in the world are beaten or raped one time in their life.”

To draw attention to this situation, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) hosted several events for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
